    I love this article, I remember reading it a few years ago.

    My favorite excerpt is
    "F1 tires are designed such that the tire compound has a high affinity for its own compound, but a low affinity for the compound of a competing tire brand. In other words, the rubber you put down on the track is sticky to you, but slippery to your competetors. Here you can see the tire sucking up its own rubber from the belt"

    *poooffff* *MIND BLOWN*
  3. Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, (insert tire company name here) and Smokey Yunick can all be mentioned in the same sentence.
